Volunteering Programmes

You can complete a customised volunteer programme in 9 career areas with Bridging Gaps.

Here at Bridging Gaps we offer a wide range of exciting and meaningful volunteer opportunities.  Our volunteer programmes are less career-orientated and more focused on serving the local population of Cape Town.

By lending your skills, experience and time to help some of the most vulnerable communities in the Western Cape, you will be changing people’s lives for the better.  Whilst making a real difference, you will also become part of a community and form relationships which will stay with you forever.

Volunteering is an amazing way to learn more about the country you are visiting and the trials its people face.  It will challenge your perspectives and test your personal abilities and through this you will learn an incredible amount about yourself.
